Gastronomy and wine tourism
If there is something that cannot be missed during your visit to Yecla, it is the fantastic local cuisine and wine tourism. A land whose gastronomic traditions are centred around substantial meals to endure the long days in the countryside, as well as important influences from the surrounding area. There is also a strong wine tradition, as grapes are the main product of the land, which even has its own protected designation of origin classifcation. It is the land of the Monastrell grape! When you come, you must try the typical Yecla lunch: “las tortas fritas”. You can't miss our gazpacho, fried cheese with tomato or our stuffed meatballs either. Our potato empanadas and our typical sweet treat ‘libricos’ are other delicacies for you to try. To round off your visit, you can have a memorable wine tour at one of the wineries associated with the Yecla Wine Route.
